  • Subtropical Storm Oscar forms in Atlantic

Oscar is the 15th named storm of the six-month Atlantic hurricane season that ends November 30.

TS Oscar was said to be about 927 miles east south east of Bermuda at midnight.

Thankfully the track of Oscar keeps it away from land in the coming days. Additional strengthening is possible as well due to the warm waters and low wind shear directly above the storm. The storm is moving toward the west near 13 miles per hour (20 km/h).

Oscar is forecast to continue to strengthen through Monday night, then gradually weaken in the open Atlantic.

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect, according to the agency.


Forecasters expect Oscar to transition to a tropical storm by early next week. Hurricane season runs through November 30. The tropical depression that would eventually become Hurricane Kate formed southeast of the Bahamas on November 8th.

Subtropical storms have less defined and cooler centres than tropical storms.

Hurricane Kate in 1985 formed on November 15 and did $300 million worth of damage and killed 15 people, according to reports.

The storm does not pose threat to Florida, U.S.
